Degas, Cézanne, Morisot, Van Gogh. In late 19th-century France, Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists radically transformed the future of art, not just through their paintings, but works on paper - drawings, pastels, watercolours, temperas, gouaches - from something preparatory that you left in a studio, to artworks in their own right. This exhibition brings together 77 works on paper by leading Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists whose innovation would challenge traditional attitudes and ultimately pave the way for later movements like Abstract Expressionism.
